    That riverboat cruise must have been so nice after walking in the heatwave for the past couple of weeks, and it was well deserved.

    I can tell from that one pic of you with the riverboat crew that it seems like you havent lost much muscle mass, that must be encouraging hey?

    Also, I read your blog post about "franticism" and the theory that it comes from urban living and is cured by rural living. That rings true with me as someone who grow up in the country, although I would add that it may also be a west-coast/east-coast thing, and you may discover that as well as you travel west. At least from my own experiences in Toronto and now living in Vancouver the pace of life is much different (with the notable exception of driving; west coast drivers seem to be in a constant panic to get to their destination 3 seconds before anyone else).

    It felt amazing to take that break. I'll keep an eye out for "franticism" as I go through various parts of the country. The west coast in general does seem to be a lot more laid back than the east, but what you point out about traffic is interesting. Guess the "franticism" is forced to surface in one way or another.

    Thanks for the comment about the picture with the riverboat crew. Yeah, I'm not skin and bones yet. That's good. :-)

    If you make it toward Atlanta, you can stay at my house for the night. It has to be on a Thursday, Fri, or Sat night though. I work night shift and those are my days off.

    Cool. Thanks! I will go to Atlanta. I have a friend who lives there, but I need places to stay outside the city on my way in and on my way out.
